As usual it will be a fun tournament series where we play for the monetary value in each event, on top of it Party Poker adds prizes to the ranking winner and runner up as well as to the winner of the final (see below on how to qualify to the final).
We will play every Sunday and Thursday from Sunday the 21st of January until Thursday the 1st of March after which we can see the final ranking. 1st prize to ranking winner is a buy-in to “IRISH OPEN MAIN EVENT DAY 1A – €1,000,000 GUARANTEED” and a shared TWIN room scheduled 14th to 18th of March with a €1150 buy in. For the ranking runner up the prize is a buy-in to “IRISH OPEN EVENT 14 – JP POKER MASTERS” and a shared TWIN room scheduled 16th to 17th of March with a €550 buy in
On top of that we will have a final played at Party Poker on Sunday the 4th of March. To qualify for the final you either have to win at least 1 of the individual ranking tournaments or rank among the top 8 players in the total ranking (excluding ALL winners of the individual ranking tournaments since they already have a seat to the final). So yes, it is possible for all of us to qualify to the final, even though you just play one tournament…
